We describe our experience with exenterative pelvic surgery for colorectal cancer in a small community hospital. We retrospectively evaluated 26 consecutive patients (14 women) with locally advanced (n=16) or recurrent (n=10) colorectal adenocarcinomas who underwent pelvic exenterations between August 1990 and December 2001 in our service.

To evaluate the effects of the antiepileptic medication vigabatrin (VGB) on the retina of pigmented rats. Scotopic and photopic electroretinograms were recorded from dark- and light-adapted Long-Evans (pigmented) and Sprague Dawley (albino) rats administered, daily, 52–55 injections of 250 mg·kg−1·day−1 VGB or 25–26 injections of 500 mg·kg−1·day−1 VGB, or a(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Sodium lauryi sulfate (SLS) is the most frequently used model for studying in vivo irritation. It is also one of the most frequent surfactants in soap preparations and cosmetic emulsions. To investigate the irritant potential of sodium salts of n-alkyl sulfates with different carbon chain length (n=8, 12, 14), we applied these substances on(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The possibility of identifying allergic reactions while they are not clinically evident could prove extremely useful in studying the evolution of skin responses in experimentally-induced contact dermatitis. In drug research and in cosmetological research, the sensitizing properties of new molecules or haptens present in the product in a low(More)
